I’d like to remind everybody that Steephill.TV has a video clip of the day feature. Just subscribe to the RSS feed there for a bike video of the day. Right now, they feature my ugly mug with a link to the (in)famous “Lost Episode” of the Spokesman podcast.
This video by filmmaker Matt Goldman features great footage of San Francisco DJ Ted Shred bombing down the hills of San Francisco on his singlespeed (freewheeling — not fixed!) brakeless bike. Shred stops by pushing his shoe into the rear wheel to “Fred Flintstone it.” Set to Ted Shred’s music, the excellent videography makes this suicidal practice look kinda cool, just like TV forensics dramas make dead bodies look hot and sexy.
The San Luis Obisbo County Bicycle Coalition has created a series of “Share the Road” public service announcements for broadcast on local TV stations, reminding motorists and cyclists that the roads are for all users to share.
Props to Diane, who saw the ads on television, and Al in Arizona who found the videos on the SLO Bike Coalition website.
San Francisco cops tell cyclists to “take the lane” for safety.
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and the San Francisco Police Department worked to create this outstanding police training video on the rights and responsibilities of cyclists in San Francisco. Cyclists are instructed to ride “about four feet away from parked cars when you’re riding your bicycle,” to report instances of driver intimidation, and report injury accidents. This video is used at the San Francisco Police Academy and at district stations around the city.
